After your hike enjoy a picnic along the banks of Deep Creek. Or plan to stay awhile at the beautiful National Park campground or at one of the close-by private campgrounds.
Dogs are allowed in the Deep Creek campground and in the picnic area. They must be kept on a leash (no more than 6 feet long) at all times. Please clean up after your pet, and do not leave them unattended in campsites, vehicles or RVs.
There is a sizable picnic area on the banks of Deep Creek, with restrooms and changing rooms available. The picnic area is open year-round. The pavilion may be reserved by calling (877) 444-6777 or visiting Recreation.gov
Individual sites and group sites are available. All group sites are on the creek. These sites go quickly, so reserve at least 6 months ahead of time. Reservations are available by calling (877) 444-6777 or visiting Recreation.gov
There are a number of private campgrounds just outside the entrance to the National Park and in nearby Bryson City.
